Let's begin outside. I finally got the front door painted earlier this fall and the red color works well for the holidays.
The wreath and the basket of greens got gussied up with a dose of dried hydrangea from my yard and some ribbon from my stash.
In my foyer I use a memo board wrapped up with a bow as a way of displaying the holiday cards that come our way.
The buggy bench is home to the Santas and snow girls.
We had to make room for the tree in the Living room so a chair moved into the foyer, it looks festive layered with a throw and holiday pillows.
Since we can't do a really tall tree, my kids chose the "fattest" tree they could find at the tree farm. We have quite the collection of ornaments and normally are unable to even use them all, not a problem with "Mr. Big" this year. Here he stands all decked out in our Living room.
A wood tray with scented candles, pine cones and glass ornaments sits on the ottoman.
The fireplace mantle in the Family room is home to my Mom's carved Santas and Swedish candlesticks, nestled in among the fresh garland.
I added the straw stars to a couple of shadow box frames I had on hand.
I love adding holiday pillows...
This is probably my favorite piece furniture, my Great Grandmother's rocker, which I updated a few years ago with a zebra patterned cushion. The needlepoint pillow adds a festive touch.
My decorations are nothing extravagant, just simple and sentimental items that get moved around each year and make our home feel like Christmas.
Join me over at Cottage & Vine today where I am linking up to Rene's Room by Room Christmas Tour. Should be some great eye candy as lots of folks will be sharing their homes decked out for the holidays, be sure to stop over for a visit...
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design?If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Design Concept Board or a complete Room Rx.
